Ballestas Islands Tour 2D/1N

  • 2 Days 1 Night
  • Max People : 22
  • Min Age : 12+

Capital city of the department of the same name – Ica is situated 303 kms. South of Lima. It was founded on June 17th, 1563 by the Spanish captain Jeronimo Luis de Cabrera, Count of Chinchón.

In this desert area of Peru we can find traces of the Paracas (700 – 200. BC) and Nazca (200. BC – 700 AD) cultures, Inca ruins and Spanish architecture as well as the desolate beauty of the desert running into the sea. To walk around an oasis surrounded by sand dunes and palm trees; to stroll along the paths of an Inca cemetery; to study the mysterious designs of the Nazca Lines, to enjoy the sea lions as they frolic on the Ballestas Islands; to feel the roughness of the sand and the beating of the wind in Paracas National Park, all are part of the same adventure: to come face to face with the land of cotton, wine and pisco.
